    I hate to even say this,but I believe love's might
    Pull the old bait and switch on us.
    Their sucking in every company and the drivers
    With the cheap fuel and rewards program.

    At the same time their prices are way cheaper on
    Just about everything in the store than the other chains.
    They stay jam packed.

    All the while buying up every piece of dirt and opening
    More truck stops than all the rest combined.
    While the petro and pilot sit on their laurels,they're
    Being Blown away by the amount of new loves going up.
    Seems like everyday I pass another new one.

    I hope I'm wrong,but I think they're gonna buy out
    Or drive both of them out of business.
    Then double the prices when they crushed the competition.

    I'll happily pay for a spot or two if I'm oversize. I'm reimbursed for it, and if it means im not taking up 2 unpaid spots and leaving you swift drivers attempting to back in the reduced space and then hitting my load, that keeps me from going to jail after I beat the ever living dog #### out of you

    lol, I hear ya,But be realistic, This isn't the 70's or 80's anymore..Where we could Slap someone around or Give some one a Fat Lip for their stuipidity

    If a Swifty hits your OD load.....Verbally punish him, Then Embarrass his company thoroughly when you call out their adjuster- Make Light of a Bad situation.

    I am being realistic. Hitting my load, even as a company driver, takes money from my family. I will go off, and have gone off.

    I'm sure you will and have- Just not Physically,,,Not these days anyway
    Cause If you have- You'd be monitored right now via your ankle- Or you'd still be in the Clink.

    Sucks,I Know- But we can't ##### people up anymore.

    Why would you ever fuel at Petro when fuel is 10 cents per gallon cheaper at Effingham Chrome Shop right across the street?
